Dinner at the palace
At a joint dinner at Bruchsal Palace, the heads of state discussed the past 25 years of German-French friendship. In his speech, Helmut Kohl greeted the guests: "Ladies and gentlemen! I am very happy to welcome you to Bruchsal Palace. We meet tonight for the 50th time because President de Gaulle and President Konrad Adenauer signed the treaty on German-French collaboration nearly 25 years ago."
